Stroke survivors and their relatives consistently ask for information about how much recovery can be expected. This study will look at how well a patient can use their arm after stroke, and at their brain images recorded within 72-hours after stroke. The hope is that brain images can improve our prediction of patient arm movement recovery at six months after stroke.
